Which new toy to test?

So now I have 3 new cameras to mess with. A Zenit 12xp SLR, a Konica C35 EF and a Fed 4b rangefinder.. I struggle with using loads of film cams as I cannot afford to process tons of film at a time (the argument there might be that I don’t need so many film cameras then-but where’s the fun in that?) I have a film to finish in the Olympus 35RC but have used that a lot so want to run with something else for a while, what to do? the Konica I suspect will produce good results but the fed4 is so big and clunky and russian that I am sure it holds some surprises. Choice is a tricky thing, though I got the Zenit so my 23 yr old son could learn how proper cameras work after he showed an interest. Any thoughts? anyone actually read this guff?

    Go for the Fed. I have a Fed 2 and it feels like a proper camera (and takes nice pictures if I let it)

    I loaded both the Fed and the Konica C35, took the Fed out shopping just in case. Bit heavy and fiddly for fumbly street use.......I think my Minolta himatic G with XP2 (or indeed the konica?) is the ideal street candid camera for me. I shall persevere and see how things turn out.
